This report illuminates the Vulnerability and Risk Assessment (VRA) methodology, which aims to develop a common understanding among a wide range of stakeholders about the main hazards and issues affecting people in a social-ecological landscape, and subsequently to jointly design measures to reduce risk, enhance well-being and promote resilient development in that landscape.
The VRA methodology does so through a participatory process of identification and prioritization of existing and future vulnerabilities, risks, capacities and ambitions. It seeks to influence stakeholders to proactively propose ways forward and ensure development initiatives are driven by inclusive, locally-relevant decision making that benefits poor and marginalized people.
